Invite Art Large

A Garden-Gnome Destroyer, a Tim Burton-inspired installation, collections of exquisit printed textiles, fashion design and leather corsets, and exciting photography collections taking inspiration from the beautiful Black Forest and showcasing exciting viewpoints.

These are just a small selection of the intriguing and wonderful explored through exhibits at Central College Nottingham’s end of year student Art & Design and Photography Shows. From Monday 13 June, you can see work from the creative world’s rising stars at our Clifton and Maid Marian Way Centres and it’s totally free entry!

The exhibition at Central’s Clifton Centre will showcase talent from a wide range of disciplines including Fashion & Textiles, Fine Art, Illustration, Graphic Design, Architecture and 3D Design. Scroll down for exact dates and times.

Highlights include works by winners of the Nottingham Young Creative Awards 2016, for example Manel Pascual Bafaluy who won the Visual Arts category with his collection of ceramics.  Also on display at Clifton will be pieces by students who have taken part in a Creative Scholarship and partnership with Nottingham’s German twin town of Karlsruhe. The prints have been inspired by the beautiful Black Forest region which is near Karlsruhe.

A second exhibition opening on the same date will be a specialist collection of exciting Photography work at the College’s Maid Marian Way Centre. Photography students have created a specialist collection of exciting images and witty digital images, with subjects ranging from the natural and magical environment in the Black Forest to the fluidity and grace of a collection of dancers.

The annual exhibitions showcase the best work of both university-level and further education students, many of whom have secured places at prestigious institutions throughout the country for September.


There is no need to book a place at the shows, you can just turn up during opening hours and enjoy them!
